Massachusetts’ Advancing Commonwealth Energy Storage (ACES) grant program was created to jump-start the energy storage industry by piloting innovative, broadly-replicable demonstration projects with multiple value streams, thereby priming Massachusetts for increased commercialization and deployment.
Sterling, Massachusetts is demoing grid 2.0 with a multi-million-dollar investment that will pay for itself in just two years.
The little town of Sterling, MA is getting a lot of attention these days. Not only has the Sterling Municipal Light Department won awards for its new solar+storage microgrid, the town is getting visitors from Germany, Japan, Norway and many other countries.
Bringing the Benefits of Solar+Storage to Low-Income Communities: A Guide for States and Municipalities
The Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) has published a new report to help state and municipal energy agencies support the development of solar+storage in LMI communities.
The town of Sterling, Massachusetts will celebrate its Municipal Light Department’s new energy storage system with a groundbreaking ceremony next week.
The next wave of clean energy policy making will be more focused on energy storage, as evidenced by the release this week of the long-awaited Massachusetts energy storage report, titled “State of Charge.”
This month, construction was completed on the nation’s first offshore wind farm, a 30 MW, five-turbine project located three miles off the Block Island shore.
Although many municipalities have gained some limited experience in the area of distributed energy resources, mostly due to the success of the distributed solar industry, adding energy storage and islanding capability to the mix raises a whole new set of questions.
Clean energy innovations tend to follow a familiar arc. The newest best thing, whether that is rooftop solar, a Tesla PowerWall, or a Prius in the garage, is bought at a premium by first adopters.
This week, Oregon became the latest state to fund an energy storage demonstration project that will use batteries and PV to power a resilient microgrid.
